Ok folks. The executive decision has been made... I am officially removing September 4th from the calendar!! That way I don't have to admit to what I ate today!! Boy, I sure did enjoy the day!!!!!
Still having a great time here in upstate NY. We took a ride into the country today and saw the rolling hills, farms and huge rolls of hay in the fields. Their corn is still in season and the fields are full of their fronds blowing in the breezes. The weather is still just perfect with warm days and very cool nights. Love it!!
My daughter arrived up here from college today so it has been good catching up. Tomorrow my son drives in from Boston. We are going to the NY State Fair so there is a good possibility that we will remove tomorrow from the calendar, too!!
So..not sure if any of you know how very good fried haddock is? I can't get that at home. And imagine this...they have a shop here called the Karmel Korn Shop! I just won't tell you how good it is. Oh, yeah, and my sister made homemade pizza tonight (but we did have salad!). And daughter brought homemade banana bread that we had for dessert. Oh, my! The good news is I only had two small pieces of pizza. That helped compensate for the 4 cups of carmel corn, I am sure!
Well, we will see how tomorrow goes at the fair!
I'm still smiling.

Had a wonderful day! Reconnecting with family is so nice. It's been a year since I have been able to visit. The weather has turned snappy cool here in upstate NY and it reminds me of when I was a child and we would go to the Apple Farm in the fall and have fresh squeezed cider! I brought tank tops and shorts but doubt they will come out of my suitcase!! lol
The day went all too fast. We had a great dinner at my sister's tonight and she was so kind to make lot's of veggies! I have stayed well within my nutrition limits again today. No official walk today as we just ran out of time. I will be sure to walk tomorrow and may just plug in the IPOD and go on my own to try to put in some good time.
This officially catches me up on my days of travel. I didn't get yesterday's written until after midnight so I was running a day behind on my blog, but now I will try to make my entries in the evening so the timeline is more accurate.

Drove the final 210 miles today through some horrendous pea soup fog in Penn. I figured it I left the motel at 11 that would give it time to burn off. Nope... I had fog for the first hour of the drive, sometimes as limiting as 2 trucklengths of vision. But, overall it was a nice trip up. I took a couple of side trips through villages to break the monotony of 81. Again, thank goodness for the GPS because it allowed me to "wander' and enjoy the scenery and then would get me right back on track. How did we ever travel without this little wonder?
I did much better on food today, staying within my calories, carbs, fats and proteins. I was pleased with this because my family LOVES TO EAT and all of the meals are eaten at restaurants. Of course, we went to a nice little diner. I made good choices, though, and faired well today at 1255 calories!
And my sister and I went out for a walk at dark tonight. It was so nice and cool outside after the rain today. I really enjoyed that. We were out maybe only 20 minutes but it was a nice time to share and catch up. Then I went back to my Mom's where I am staying.
Off to bed (yes it IS after 1 a.m. --- Mom is a night owl and just gets going at midnight!! lol)...
Thanks for all the good words and support! It really, REALLY helps!!
